Berry Mania: fun for a cause

That’s what the Ladysmith Resources Centre’s Berry Mania Fun Family Festival is all about Aug. 30 at Transfer Beach.

Family fun in support of a great cause!

That’s what the Ladysmith Resources Centre’s Berry Mania Fun Family Festival is all about Aug. 30 at Transfer Beach.

From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. families can create a craft, play Giant Jenga and bean bag toss, play beach volleyball and street hockey, build a bird house, paint an original piece of bubble art, and play old fashion outdoor games.

It’s also an opportunity to support programs and services offered by the Ladysmith Resources Centre.

“Berry Mania is a fund raising event for The Ladysmith Resources Centre and an opportunity to increase awareness in of the valuable programs provided and supported by LRCA,” says a release.

Tickets are on sale now for the two raffles that will be drawn at Berry Mania. They are the event’s main fund-raisers. The first is for one trip for two to any scheduled WestJet destination; the second for five grocery vouchers, sponsored by 49th Parallel Grocers and LRCA.

Tickets are available any weekday at the Ladysmith Resources Centre, 630 2nd Ave. between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.  Booths will be set up a couple of days a week at 49th Parallel and at the Sunday night Concerts at Transfer Beach. Tickets will also be sold at the Berry Mania Festival Aug. 30, if they are still available.

The draws will be made Sunday, Aug. 30 in the Amphitheater at Concerts at the Beach – an exciting finale for everyone at the festival.

“Bring your family down to Transfer Beach for a fun afternoon of interactive, multi-generational games and events,” say the release. “Berry Mania is a family fun festival and great opportunity to bring your family to the park and enjoy a great afternoon outdoors.”
